WATCH THIS: SUNDAY
“Dare Me” (9 p.m., 12 a.m., USA; 11 p.m., E!)): Adapted from a bestselling novel by Megan Abbott, who serves as writer and executive producer here, this new drama explores teen angst and power dynamics in the cutthroat world of high-school cheerleading. Set in a small Midwestern town, the story follows the volatile relationship between best friends Addy and Beth (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly, respectively), whose bond is tested by newly arrived coach Colette French (Willa Fitzgerald), who has been tasked with whipping their squad into championship shape.
“Killer Siblings” (6 p.m., 8 p.m., OXY): In a new episode, the murder of a correctional officer at first seems to be a clear-cut act of vengeance. Subsequent investigation, however, exposes a clandestine love triangle. After he learns his wife is having an affair, a cuckolded husband hatches a plan to kill her lover, enlisting the help of his brothers to carry out the scheme.
“Flirty Dancing” (7 p.m., FOX): Shut up and dance! That appears to be the mantra for this new dating series hosted by actress and dancer Jenna Dewan (“The Resident”), in which a blind date starts out with dance lessons for some perfect strangers. Each person is taught half of a dance routine, then taken to a romantic location where, without saying a word, they perform the dance twice, once with each of two different partners. A full date follows with whichever partner provides the better connection.
“Ray Donovan” (7 p.m., 12:30 a.m., Showtime): In a new episode called “The Transfer Agent,” Mickey (Jon Voight) finally learns the truth behind why the heist was so badly botched. Elsewhere, Ray and Molly (Liev Schreiber, Kerry Condon) are ready to do whatever it takes to track down Sandy (Sandy Martin) and Mickey. Eddie Marsan, Pooch Hall and Dash Mihok also star.
“Duff’s New Year’s Eve Cake-Off” (8 p.m., 11 p.m., Food): Host Duff Goldman rings in the New Year a couple of days early as four professional bakers compete in a variety of unconventional baking and design challenges in which flavor is only — pardon the expression — the icing on the cake. The bakers are challenged to capture and convey a theme of change across the years in their cakes, but the cakes themselves also must transform from old to new. Judges Dan Langan and Waylynn Lucas put their heads together to decide who earns the $10,000 grand prize.
